Wakefield Wildcats v Wigan Warriors - Tetley's Super League VI Round 20
Sunday 15th July 2001. Kick Off 3:30pm at Belle Vue

Match Report

Wakefield slumped to their eighth consecutive defeat but showed much improved form against second-placed Wigan.

A tense, entertaining game gave Wildcats fans more to cheer about than in any match since they beat Bradford back in April.

The recent run of defeats and the threat of a six-point deduction have taken their toll on Wakefield but the side bounced back in style to come within a whisker of beating the title chasers.

Wildcats played an outstanding opening 20 minutes and stunned Wigan with a second-minute try by skipper Willie Poching, converted by the inspirational Dane Dorahy.

The visitors hit back with a David Furner try within five minutes, and on quarter-time Brett Dallas flew in to give the Warriors the lead.

Farrell converted to bring up double figures for the visitors.

Wigan prop Harvey Howard gave away two needless penalties which Dorahy converted to level the score but Farrell converted a penalty on the hooter to give Wigan a 12-10 half-time lead.

Converted second half tries by Paul March and Dorahy, plus a Dorahy drop goal, left Wakefield just a point behind the Warriors after 60 minutes.

But Wigan skipper Andy Farrell saved his side's blushes when he converted his own try on 64 minutes. He then a scored a drop goal before centre Paul Johnson sealed the win with a try two minutes from time.
